Winner! Winner! Seafood Dinner! Scholtz Does The Double And Follows Up His MotoAmerica Superstock 1000 Race 1 Win At Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca With Another Win In Race 2
Monterey, CA - July 10, 2017 –
For the second day in a row, Yamalube/Westby Racing’s Mathew Scholtz won the MotoAmerica Superstock 1000 race at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca near the California seacoast.
Mathew backed up his fifth-place overall finish on Saturday in the combined Superbike/Superstock 1000 race with a sixth-place overall finish on Sunday, and he took the checkered flag just .232 of a second behind Superbike rider Kyle Wyman.
“It was pretty much a perfect race for me,” Scholtz said. “I led the Superstock guys from the first lap and opened up a slight gap, maybe up to about 2.5 seconds. And then, Bobby Fong caught up to me with probably seven or eight laps left. I was kind of just holding him off from there. I’m really happy heading into the break. We have a decent lead in the Superstock 1000 Championship.”
After the weekend’s two race wins, which were Mathew’s fourth and fifth class victories of the season, the South African now leads the 2017 MotoAmerica Superstock 1000 Championship by 43 points over second-place Bobby Fong.
The Yamalube/Westby Racing team, along with the rest of the MotoAmerica riders and teams, will take a short summer break and return to action at the Championship at Sonoma Raceway in northern California on August 11-13.
